After stretching and suppporting myself when bending & fighting the pain for several days, I listened to my body and put on my corset. Immediately my sore muscle on top of my left hip had some relief! Something else was supporting my body and giving it a rest.
Now I really didn't intend to don a corset over top of shorts & a tank top -- but urgency demanded it.
I'm reminded that besides helping to create a wonderful shape, corsets do indeed provide foundation support. Thankfully today that spelled R-E-L-I-E-F.
